Arsenal win race to sign highly-rated Kolasinac

According to Sky Sports, and several other sources, Arsenal have sealed a deal to sign Schalke star Sead Kolasinac on a free transfer, once his contract at the Veltins Arena expires this summer.

The 23-year-old Bosnian global will sign for Arsenal when his contract with Schalke expires, but in what set-up will he play?

Would Kolasinac be a good signing for Arsenal?

Arsene Wenger has refused to confirm that Arsenal will sign Schalke's Sead Kolasinac at the end of the season. "He will fit in perfectly at Arsenal".

Klopp has been tracking 'outstanding' Kolasinac all season, and given his age, experience, and position-specific talents, he is an arguably an ideal solution to to Liverpool's left-back problem.

"I'm not an Arsenal insider but there's one coach who has been rumoured as coming to Arsenal and that's Thomas Tuchel who is having major problems at Borussia Dortmund", he told talkSPORT 2.

He is set to compete with Spaniard Nacho Monreal for the left-back spot at Arsenal next season, with the future of academy product Kieran Gibbs likely to now lie beyond Emirates Stadium. Kolasinac is a versatile, solidly built and ultra-athletic defender who can play full-back, center-back or even as a defensive midfielder.

He excels in defending one-on-one situations and also offers an attacking threat going forward, having scored three goals and setting up five in the Bundesliga this season.
